Barbara J. Durkin Publishes Research Article
Barbara J. Durkin, Assistant Professor of Management, published a research article “Lifelong Professional Education for Lawyers: A Collaborative Model,” in the peer-reviewed The Journal of American Academy of Business, Cambridge, 19(2), 126-132 (2014). Her paper suggests a new collaborative model among law schools, law firms, public interest groups, continuing education providers, and regulatory agencies. Its function would be to provide long-term sustainable development of legal talent through standardized training of lawyers and by a system of tracking legal expertise. Dr. Durkin’s primary areas of specialization are human resources and talent management, especially in the multi-billion dollar legal services industry.
